Birmingham Amputations Lawyers
Most construction sites are inherently hazardous environments, with a higher than average risk of potential injuries. Such work usually involves heavy equipment and materials that can be dangerous if not properly controlled. Additionally, workers often used sharp tools in the course of their work that, if mishandle, could cause severe cuts or even amputations. Losing a limb due to a construction accident, whether as a passerby or construction worker, can be extraordinarily painful and will require extensive medical services in order to treat the injury and its ensuing repercussions.
If you lost a limb in a construction accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to hold the responsible individual liable for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses.

Amputation Injury Hazards
Construction sites can be dangerous to workers and anyone near the site, especially when a construction company or worker fails to perform their job safely and appropriately. This could result in an accident and severe injuries, such as a limb amputation. A few of the ways such an injury might occur are:
- Mishandled tools, such as saws and knives
- Heavy materials that trap a limb
- Heavy machinery that pins or crushes a limb
Losing a limb will affect a victim’s life in a significant manner, potentially delaying their ability to return to work. Such an injury can put a victim in the difficult situation recovering from extreme physical trauma while attempting to manage the high financial costs of expensive medical treatments.
If someone else’s reckless behavior caused you to lose a limb in a construction accident, you may have legal recourse to seek compensation.
